Thanx Marc,

I´ve tried to be as retro as I can with this bike.
Maybe some carbon risers...

The wooden plank was on the scales when i zeroed it, so the weight is kosher.

Plus I broke my carbon railed saddle which was a bummer but I got a substitute in a ti railed one instead.

OK, so it´s been awhile since I updated this thread.
Not really an update, more of a change.
Haven´t had a nice Selle san marco saddle since I first broke my ssm ti seat and then my ssm carbon seat :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
Thanks to Herb from the states I got a well used, nice and lite ti seat again 8)

Soon I´ll have a change in the front. Just refining little by little :mrgreen:

This bike seriously makes me happy. I had been following the Privateer thread - didn't see this one. What a cool, cool bike.

At one point you seem to have had the same issue I have now, which is rear brake studs. Mine doesn't have them - didn't occur to me that might be something hard to find. Any suggestions?

Oh wow - you made yours - I'm really not that industrious. Uh oh... :-)

Thanks!

Howdy, it´s been a while since I´ve written in this thread.
I put on the new bar and that lowered the weight about 100 g.
Then I fell and crushed my left elbow...
I was off the bike 3 months before I started riding again, although taking it real easy.
Fast forward to june 2014 and I was out riding my other Bonty, and I crashed again breaking my other arm :O
If I hadn't had elbow protection I would´ve broken my other elbow as well, it was a pretty bad accident. I had just bought a new helmet which probably saved me from concussion.
Sadly now I´m not so much into biking as I got into my Bertone Coupé instead ;)
But I think I´m going to visit a bit more as my interest in biking has started to come back, but probably more in the vein of road biking.

Anyways I wish everyone a Happy New Year!

OK folks, about time for an update!

I haven´t been riding these last couple of years as I crushed my left elbow and less than a year later broke my right arm. Didn´t have the nerves riding...

Now I´ve bought brand spanking new SLX M7000 front brake.
It was really easy to install and luck was with me as it fit my Marz from 2001 :D

Here´s a few pics with it installed. Doesn´t look too out af place I think!
